Opened in 1929, Old Orchard Country Club has a classic design with challenges that stand up to modern golf courses. Throughout the course, you'll see traces of the site's former use as a farm. Ancient apple trees from the original orchard frame many of the holes. The diverse layout will test you with a variety of different shots but the gently rolling terrain makes for an easy walk. Skill and strategy will be generously rewarded but it's not an overly punishing layout for the high handicapper. Old Orchard's greens play true and fast and they are often flanked with strategically positioned bunkers. A stream wanders through the golf course, coming into play on several holes. Golfers will face a tricky island green on the par-5 seventh hole as well as an almost-island green on the par-4 13th.

Beats being home!

Cold, crisp and out on the course. What more could I ask for? There was some drainage work being done but the pro shop disclosed that up front. Winter rates for seniors hard to beat. Good afternoon spent with friends on a course I will never master... but I keep trying. Apparent time and some money has been spent in the last year to get this course back in shape. I will play it again - soon.

Great course

Great layout and challenging. There was some construction going on so it wasn’t perfect but we made the best out of it. Definitely recommend it.

What it is for the price

I've played this course a few times, it isn't the prettiest course or most well kept but is actually a fairly challenging course. No rangers patrolling so pace of play can lag. Got stuck behind a foursome that added an hour to our game, but get plenty of privacy when playing poorly! Wouldn't pay more than 40-45 bucks to play here tho even over the summer.

Driver friendly. Putting greens will be your enemy

Played here in November 2020. Also played here June 2019. Both times course conditions were on the below average side. Especially the greens. We can all appreciate course maintenance. This place needs more of it. Pace of play was ok. Staff was very friendly

End of season

Course was in much better condition two weeks ago. Must be end of season nothing done since then . Fairways were not cut and leaves everywhere. Back nine greens in terrible shape. $30 to walk the course and finished in under 4 hours.

Needs more upkeep

The course layout is good but they need to buy a leaf blower and they need to better maintain the tee boxes

GolfNow Hot Deal at Old Orchard

Course condition has improved since last played a year ago, but still needs to go some. Played the day after very heavy rain so some areas still wet. They allowed carts out with 90 degrees across fairway. Very few people out.
Staff was very nice.
Greens have improved some, but some greens still sparse neat the edges. Tees had grass, but bumpy. Fairways imroved since 2019. Round was Nov so grass was thinning.
Worth playing when not crowded as deing is Tillinghast with some intersting holes, island green, 7th
